Had Comcast drop by a high-definition box yesterday. I was skeptical, as I knew my TiVo wouldn’t play with the high-def component signal, so I’ve got this weird setup now that includes two cable boxes going into the same TV. There’s only a handful of channels in high-definition right now, including ABC, NBC, PBS, CBS, ESPN, HBO and Showtime. The picture is noticeably sharper, and 16×9 is a beautiful thing. But you can tell Comcast is still compressing the signal too much as some artifacts show. DVD quality it ain’t… closer than ever before though.

So the HD TiVo is supposed to be out by now, dammit. So where is it guys?
